Well, I've only blogged once since I've been back in WA. Part of me has been in mourning (having left the U.P. behind), but I've also been busy. My computer bit the dust so that hasn't helped. Here's a snapshot (or two) of what I've been up to. MomMA picked us up at the airport over a week ago, our new roommate moved in, I got my hair cut, momMA and I walked and picnicked and explored, I split time between my house and hers, and now I'm back at work.

I read this the other day in my study about prayer:
"Suppose you were given one piece of a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Imagine that you were asked to look at that piece and tell what the whole puzzle looks like. You couldn't possibly do it. Standing alone, the puzzle piece seems random and without purpose. Only when it's placed in its proper context does it begin to make sense. So it is with life. Each circumstance fits into the big picture. Don't waste your time trying to make each piece make sense by itself. We tend to try to define God's will incident by incident, happening by happening, as if each occurence in our lives stands alone. Instead, everything is being blended together into the whole.
God is working out His will according to an eternal strategy. Each individual piece is part of His big plan."
